Agustin Orso

My name is Agustín, born and raced in San Pedro, Buenos Aires state. I have worked in the tourism industry for the past 6 years and 8 in the Hospitality industry.

After getting my degree, I started traveling to different countries all over the world. Traveling and experiencing the traditions of many diverse countries during my travels has given me the opportunity to not only learn more about the world, but also how to truly enjoy every moment. With my worldly experience and travel-tested confidence, after seven years abroad I came back to Argentina, and I’m excited to start helping people appreciate the diversity, beauty, culture and traditions of the amazing country I call home, as well as the region it’s immersed in.

I really hope my experience helps you design your dream vacation.

It is an experience that I will never forget and that I Highly recommend ! "

Featured trips & expertise

A Malbec vineyard surrounded by mountains
Argentina's Wine Country: Buenos Aires & Mendoza - 7 Days

This fun weeklong trip splits time in two of Argentina's most desirable destinations: Buenos Aires, with sophisticated restaurants, theaters, history, and architecture, and the smaller, more relaxed city of Mendoza surrounded by impressive Andean views and lush vineyards. Take part in a range of guided activities like tangoing, wine tasting, trekking, rafting, and ziplining for the ultimate South American adventure.

Easter Island
Easter Island & Santiago - 6 Days

Your main destination on this seven-day itinerary is a Pacific island of almost mythic proportions, as beautiful as it is remote. To the Chileans, it's Isla de Pascua, but the indigenous residents have another name for it: Rapa Nui. The rest of the world knows it by its most famous nickname: Easter Island. This Chilean territory, formed of volcanic rock, is 2.5-million years old, and on this adventure, you'll get to explore its major archeological sites. First, fly into Santiago and experience the culture of the capital city as well as the seaside city of Valparaiso. Next, you'll then hop a flight to Easter Island, where you’ll stay for four days, immersing yourself in its rich cultural heritage and natural beauty.

Quebrada de Humahuaca near Salta
Classic Argentina: Buenos Aires, Bariloche, Mendoza, & Salta - 14 Days

Immerse yourself in Argentina's rich city and country life. Begin by exploring the culture and culinary arts of Buenos Aires. Next, head to the Lake District, where you'll embark on nature excursions in the wild and beautiful Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi. Then, venture to Medoza, and indulge your senses while enjoying wine and vineyard tours. Finally, visit the stunning landscapes surrounding Salta, including rugged gorges, salt flats, and painted deserts. Top it all off with a visit to San Antonio de Areco, a traditional cowboy town where you'll stay on a working estancia.

Easter Island
Easter Island & Santiago - 7 Days

On this adventure, you'll explore remote Rapa Nui—the Chilean territory also known as the legendary Easter Island. Fly into Santiago to experience the culture of the capital city and seaside Valparaiso. After a wine tour and an excursion into the Chilean mountains, you'll finally hop a flight to Easter Island, where you’ll hang out with the famous stone moai statues that are found nowhere else on earth.

Sunrise in Torres del Paine National Park
Relaxing Adventure in Patagonia - 12 Days

This exciting 12-day itinerary explores key highlights of Patagonia (in both countries) at a relaxed pace. After a day in Chile's capital, fly south to Puerto Natales, a port city that acts as the jumping on/off point for Torres del Paine—one of the most famous national parks in the world. Here, you'll hike and stay two nights at a luxury eco-camp before crossing the border for the best glaciers in Argentina.

Puna, Argentina
Trekking Argentina's Salta Region - 10 Days

If you're looking to do a deep-dive into northwestern Argentina, this trek gives you access to a gorgeous region of towering mountains and deep valleys, and the chance to immerse yourself in high-altitude communities that can only be reached on foot. With no one major site to work up to but rather a full ten days of extraordinary places, on this trip, the journey really is the destination.

Recent trip reviews for Agustin

Best of patagonia - 9 days, Argentina - Jan 25 - Feb 3, 2019

Traveler: Douglas A. - Local specialist: Agustin Orso

Overall great experience. Very organized. Good communication along the way.
Only guide was Sandra. Great several hours touring Buenos Aires.
Small tweaks. Highlight cost of national parks and that it is cash only.
Acknowledge that AM tours may be late because of multiple pickups. Important to be ready however less stress if you know that last pickup may be 30 minutes after set time.
Note actual length of bus rides.
I would combine the two itineraries provided.
Overall well put together trip.

Your team did a great job with the overall organization of the trip. We were met at EZE by Ceci, who provided a bottle of wine. All connections were spot on. We took two trips out to Perito Moreno glacier. If I had realized how long it takes to get out there, I might have made a change in our daily itinerary...still, not a big deal. I thought the cave on the way to Torres Del Paine Park was interesting, but not sure it was worth the time. Everything else was spectacular. We were well... read more

Your team did a great job with the overall organization of the trip. We were met at EZE by Ceci, who provided a bottle of wine. All connections were spot on. We took two trips out to Perito Moreno glacier. If I had realized how long it takes to get out there, I might have made a change in our daily itinerary...still, not a big deal. I thought the cave on the way to Torres Del Paine Park was interesting, but not sure it was worth the time. Everything else was spectacular. We were well prepared for the weather, and the changes. I had no idea of the wind conditions. Not a complaint, but wow, Puerto Natales was windy!! The hotel in El Calafate was well located, but they had some issues with the heat (too much). I think El Chaltén is a special place. The hiking was unbelievable, even though I came up about 600 Meters short of the lake on the Fitzroy trail. My sons made it. Was surprised how cheap food was in Argentina, but also how expensive it was in Chile (relatively speaking). Another thing I found interesting. The size of the area and how long it takes to get around. El Calafate to Puerto Natales...especially going down was a long haul. Again, not complaint, just an observation. Thank you for all you did!!

The entire trip went as smoothly as possible. All transfers were on time, all guides were quite knowledgeable and gracious hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would love to return. We had many unique experiences and were grateful to see them all. The most spectacular were the Beagle Channel tour in Ushuaia, the hiking in El Chalten and the Perito Moreno Glacier tour near El Calafate.
